Blurb: Hit author John Inman presents five novels of romance, from tongue in cheek to seriously chic—Shy: Funny what a couple of guys can accomplish when they’re crazy about each other. Not even nine hundred chickens can stand in the way of true love.—Loving Hector: Hector’s evil ex is dead set on holding on—even if it means kidnapping Hector to keep him from Dill forever! Now Dill has to pull an army together to rescue Hector, and just where the hell is he supposed to find an army? Gads, if only Dill could write books this interesting!—Hobbled: Danny had plans to come out this summer—maybe even get laid! He doesn’t have time for ankle monitors and serial killers! Then ginger-haired Luke Jamison moves in next door. Gee. If Danny can survive it, this summer might not be so bad after all.—Serenading Stanley: Welcome to the Belladonna Arms, a rundown little apartment building perched atop a hill in downtown San Diego, home to the city’s lost and lovelorn. While Roger tries to batter down Stanley’s defenses, Stanley turns to his new neighbors to learn about love.—Spirit: Toss a murder, a hot young stud, an unexpected love affair, and a spooky-ass ghost with a weird sense of humor into Jason’s summer plans, and you’ve got the makings for one hell of a ride.
Review: I’ve had a few of John Inman’s books on my Amazon wish list for quite a while, but they kept being pushed back by others, and I just couldn’t seem to get around to them. When this bundle came up, I realized that a couple of the ones on my wish list were included in the bundle and thought, well, now I can knock them all out at once.
I was a little worried at first since I hadn’t read anything by this author that I was going to start reading and not like the writing style or something, and then have five books to read. Lucky for me that was not the case. As I was finishing each book I would think, I think I like this one the best…until I finished the next one. I will say if you aren’t a fan of insta-love, these might not be the books for you, but even if you aren’t a fan, I would give them a try because the writing is amazing. I was laughing out loud a good amount of the time I was reading.
The pace of all the books is pretty quick, so they were easy, fun, enjoyable reads. I am happy I gave this new-to-me author a shot and picked up the bundle. Now a couple more John Inman books have been added to my wish list, with the Belladonna Arms books moving right up to the top.
